This iPhone app has a "Steampunk" theme. The look and feel is like a mechanical device from the Victorian era, with a magical/science fiction element. So, there will be some mechanical brass elements, some gears, etc.
The challenge is to make it "steampunk" but maintain clarity of function and make it "user friendly". So, it's "steampunk" but with the Apple aesthetic. It cannot be hard to understand. And any text must be easy to read.
The application has 3 main interfaces interfaces, with some buttons that persist throughout all 3 and some buttons that are specific to particular interfaces. Of course, there needs to be a consistent look and feel throughout the application.
If you have experience with apps and creative ideas about how apps should feel and function, that is an advantage.
Also, if you can show me samples of "steampunk" work you've done, that is good. And let me know your mobile app experience.
The design of this app will require the following:
-- Design of the App Logo for the iPhone menu
-- The Large App Logo & Title for the Loading screen and web site usage. And a smaller version of the title will be needed for within the app itself.
-- Lower menu bar with 4 Lower Menu buttons that each have a Default and Toggle state
(the app logos and those 4 Lower menu buttons will be the most time intensive since they are the most important)
The rest of the requirements are easier but still important:
-- The Top menu/title bar and background for Interface #1A, which includes 3 buttons
-- The Top menu/title bar for Interface #1B which is like #1A but includes a Text entry box
-- Category bars for Interface #1C
-- The Top Menu Bar for interface #2 which includes 1 unique button
-- The Main Body for interface #2 which includes 1 radial, 1 toggle button and a text entry box, and a heading
-- Background/text ideas for the main selection menu and Interface #3 (which is mostly text)
-- The Top Bar for Interface #3 which includes
-- 1 Lower Menu "Back" button
-- 5 simple Buttons required for "Edit Mode"
-- An informational bar that is mostly text. It has a simple toggle state too
-- A simple emailing interface featuring three identical buttons and text information
-- 5 sub menu buttons
-- A Settings Interface, featuring 2 scroll reels and a switch (on/off) button
-- A Help page which is just a long document with linkable headings at the top that links to text and links further down the page.
- an arrow for indicating there is another level to a menu item.
- a simple symbol (maybe a shiny green circle) that indicates a menu item is selectable
-- a "Random" button that designates a "random selection" by the program
-- Three Text box alerts
In summary, we need to create:
- 2 Logos
- About 20 to 25 buttons. 6 or 7 of them have toggle states.
- 4 or 5 informational symbols
- Design the look at feel for the three main interfaces with one interface having two sub-interfaces. (this will mainly involve designing top and bottom menu bars)
- Top and bottom menu bars, one informational bar
- A Help and Settings Page
- General work, as this is a text-heavy app: consultation on the strategy for text and text backgrounds.
Attached are some steampunk-related inspirational images I found on the Web.
